    Showing true love and affection without expecting anything in return is possible for only one person, that is a MOTHER. She is the only one who can punish you, guide you, teach you right behaviour and always think for your better future. She is the only one who can understand your pain and feelings very well. She cheers with your success and always guide you with the proper solution if you lose. God cannot be everywhere with us so he created mother.
    When youll become a mother, youll understand me
    These were the wordings I heard from my mother when I was growing. I never thought this could be true, but am now finding it true while bringing up my daughter.
    Even though it was very difficult to manage the life with the earnings they had, my mother never said No to whatever I asked. She had worked very hard with my father to run a hotel business and give me a good education.
    I would never forget that day when I got my job at Hyderabad and my mother came all the way from Bangalore to search for a hostel. I couldnt imagine how Id stay alone without my mother the day she left me in the hostel. But I never understood how she felt as a mother back then. But as a mother she was hard and didnt show her feelings in front of me as she knew that it was for my future. Today when I see my daughter growing, I cannot imagine myself on that day when she will be moving to hostel for further studies.
    A mother knows when she has to be caring, loving and when she has to be hard with her child.
    Again, I remember the day when she said bye to me while sending me with my husband. I never knew how to cook before marriage and my mom, in spite of getting tired due to the marriage, she spent a lot more time preparing all kind of spices and powders that made my job easier.
    One more great time I can remember my mother is when she was with me during my pregnancy and after delivery. She never allowed me to work till 5-6 months after the baby was born and taught me each and everything about caring the baby. This was the time again I felt bad, and thought how can I stay without her help when she left me alone and went back. Now, I could realise that it was hard time for her too to leave me alone, but it was inevitable.
    Today when I face problems bringing up my daughter, I realise the problems my mother suffered.
    There are few happy moments with my mother to share too, whenever she visited my place, we all together went to many places and enjoyed. Even now if I visit her place she takes care of me like a child.
    No matter how old you are, you are still a small child to your mother.
    According to me my mother is always a super woman.

    My Mom was a working woman. 9 to 5:30 government job. From my birth, I had seen her busy. She even had no time to pick up me in her lap and cuddle. Unlike most of her colleagues, she was dutiful. She never came early from her office. Neither she attended my school's parent-teacher meetings nor was she present when I received the first prize of my life. So, we had very few memories to cherish. When I had time, she was busy and when she had time, I was busy. My mother was quite busy looking after my father. He was suffering from Parkinson's disease followed by paralysis. And when she finally started staying, I got married. She retired from the job but not from the household chores.
    After marriage, I did not miss her much and was not very eager to meet her either. But as per the old rituals, I had to stay with Mom during my first delivery. As always, I thought of her as a bad mother. I was not expecting any special attention from her. Whatever she was doing was more than enough for me. Thank God I had two brothers who were there to make me happy.
    I was willingly waiting to go back to my home. So, at the end of the third week when hubby called, I asked him to take me and my newborn daughter back. He insisted on me to live for at least a few more weeks but I refused. Mom was too busy with Dad and household chores. I felt neglected. He promised to take me home next day. My sasural was in the same city with a distance of hardly 35 Km.
    When Mom heard this, she said, "It will be better." I started packing my bags. Too tired of all this, I lay down on the floor itself. As I was sleep, my eyes opened suddenly. Mom was trying to wake me up.
    "What happened?" I asked, annoyed.
    "Nothing. Get up and sleep on the bed. You will catch cold."
    I was not interested but rose up and lay on the bed. She also sat near me, You must be tired. I have made garlic-mustered oil. It is good for you." Then she took a bowl from table and started massaging my hand. I looked at her face. Her wrinkled face had a sign of satisfaction.
    She massaged my feet, head, oiled my hair. Before leaving the room, she said, I had no time to look after you when you were a kid. But at least I looked after your baby for these few days. Keep coming."
    I was surprised. That day was the most cherish-able day with Mom who is no more today.

    MOM: THE CLASP OF MY LIFE

    An ethereal entity caressing past my life,
    Destiny was it,
    I could feel the warmth of her hand,
    For only too short a time.

    The scent of your body,
    Sprinkled with perfume,
    For me to breathe.

    The heartbeat of our home,
    Her love as pure as gold,
    Unblemished like a clear sky,
    Pouring down scintillating hailstones,
    Diffusing an aura of benevolence.

    Floundering throughout life,
    Never halting for breath,
    Nor for leisure,
    Hands rotting, never resting,
    Pleased to bestow her life
    For her scions
    Her mouth never escaping a word.

    A love so unique,
    It is neither acquired nor deserved,
    Your memory a treasure,
    Missed beyond measure.

    I still feel her stare on my face,
    The thousand kisses she planted,
    The eternal hug,
    Lasting for moments longer,
    The sweets of laughter.

    Never can I completely repay her,
    But I did as much as I could,
    Nursed her until
    She was no more,
    And will idolize her until
    I am no more.

    With mothers, one cannot explain the one best memories as there are bundles and bundles of memories and we can write them on and on.. however , one of the recent and happiest moment of my life with her was when I, myself become mother and she was there with me to share all infinite emotions and tears into my eyes. She's there in the beginning of the journey of my motherhood. Due to lockdown, I am still with her and learning the best out of her towards the betterment of my motherhood for the best future of my son.

    Mother,

    You are the one who taught me how to walk and talk, You never skipped your duties even when life showed you tremors and shocks.

    Ma, you are the power house of my life , since my life began, Mother! the word where the meaning of love begins and end.

    Even though life decided to be grave with you , you ultimately chose to be courageous and brave.

    Everything else in the life is unsure, but mothers love in you is very pure for sure.

    Ma, you are the one who never gave up on life despite all the struggles, Just to make sure that all your kids are happy and snuggled.

    Mom! You are sure the meaning of perseverance, sacrifice, hard work and love. Many thanks to you, but thats not enough and for your endurance, I bow!

    My mom is the epitome of sacrifice.

    My respectable & lovable MOM #Gnanambal is my role model and special & super woman in my life. Why I'm telling this here, she was a brilliant and intelligent woman even though she was not studying much. She had a good & strong WILL POWER & POSITIVE THINKING in every aspects. She never be a lazy woman in her life until her last breath. She taught me many good values like "DON'T BLAME OTHERS, HELP OTHERS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN DO, LOVE OTHERS, DON'T USE HARSH WORDS, DON'T BE LAZY........etc.,. Till date I follow her advises only in my day-today life. I salute her on this great Mother's Day. I learnt from my Mom so many things. Especially she was an expert in cooking. She used to cook without any measurement instruments. She used to cook just with her experience in approximate quantities. All were very nice and tasty. She taught me the tricks in cooking that how to cook tasty with using little things. At present, I am able to cook and take the photos, write the recipes along wit h those photos to the familiar Tamil Magazines. All the credit goes to my Mom only.

    Mom always said Be confident and work hard for the goal you set. It was a tiring day for me. Mother had come to visit me at my house after few months of my marriage.
    I asked her how she managed to smile and be positive always. I used to get very angry at big n small matters. Mom simply answered that getting angry and hyped you don't gain anything. Then why to stress n remain moodless.
    Cheer up, your make up should be your best smile. Hug people, love all. I at first felt what yaar would it really work.
    I started smiling and letting things go. I found that I am feeling lighter. Slowly and steadily my face lit up
    Thanks mom. Today you live in our hearts. Shine through us. Love u dear mom

    All my life we had stayed in a very small place. It was a 1 room kitchen flat. It was an old building with few amenities. But my mother never complained or made me or my sister feel inferior. She would always make sure that we get the best of food, learning, education. She would stay hungry but let us eat. She would not buy a new saree for years but get us clothes on Diwali.

    As I got job and started earning, I decided that it is time that she gets a better lifestyle and she deserves it. I took a new 2 BHK flat where we can stay. It was a new construction, quite spacious and had all the latest amenities. When I took her to show the flat, the emotions that she had and the feelings that she got are priceless. I will never forget those moments. She told me that she is proud of me. I don't need any validation from anyone in the world as long as my mom says she is proud of me. For me, she was, is & will always be my first love.

    I hope I get this prize as I would love to gift her something cool. #MothersDay

    Leaving my mom back home when coming to hostel was no less than a nightmare for me. The first month at hostel: I wish mom was here.
    That 20mins conversation over phone was the best part of my day and her voice was simply love. She was everything for me: my best friend and we shared every bit of our lives with each other.
    After two months-
    Exams over. Time to go home- yayy! The only person on my mind was MOM!
    Reached home and found mom asleep after being tired of the days work (doctor) and waiting for my 6hrs late superfast train.

    Woke her up quietly. And I simply cannot explain how excited we both were to see each other. She simply hugged me and i thought it would would be an usual 10 seconds hug but wait 10 mins it was! I was back home. Those two months were even tougher for her I realised. Two persons who never spent an eve without seeing each other were now 500 kms apart, two months no see.
    An evening had never felt better.

    My mother, is my hero and my inspiration. She inspires and motivates me to grow without any barriers. It seems to me that this woman looks at life as a challenge and wholeheartedly intends to seize the day every day. My mother looked after me and supported me in every part of my life. Right from childhood she has been with me like my shadow. It had been riddled with hurdles and difficulties, but she has managed to cross them all to because of the amazing and independent person she is.Being physically challenged I am not able to move by myself and because of this I have not been able to do daily routine activities since childhood. At the beginning this was a hardship for my mother, but she was determined to make it work. She not only helped me whenever I needed but she also taught me to help myself. She taught me to keep myself clean and neat, how to eat and how to know how much to eat. She says, "a child does not learn from what parents say but from what parents do". I have had three operations and various therapies on my spine but none have been successful. I was rejected from schools because of their lack of infrastructure and facilities. I was finally admitted to one school. My mother had to be there with me the whole day, but at the same time she also had to handle our home life. So she started tailoring and working during school hours. That is how she was able to satisfy financial needs in the home. Now I've graduated in Business Administration and Im pursuing a Masters.Whenever I look at my mother I see an ordinary person but when I think about what she does and how she does it she becomes divine and the reason of my smile! The experience of my life so far has truly brought things into perspective. My mother has taught me that hard times can be overcome and that losing battles can be won. She has taught me more than I could have learnt from any book. She sets an inspirational example to me teaching me how to live life and make wise choices, even in the most uncertain situations.I respect her a lot. She is my inspiration, my role model

    This incident happened before 6 months. I had to travel to my home town to attend my cousins marriage. Most of the time my brother-in-law comes to pick me up from airport. So I go to his house first, after staying there for few days I go to my home. But, this time me and my mom decided to meet at my cousins place on marriage day. Finally, after two days I went to my cousin's place. I was super excited to meet mom (was meeting her after a long time). The moment I entered my cousins house, my eyes started searching for my mom. But it was so crowded because of marriage function and I could not find her. Then I saw my Aunt (moms sister), asked her where is my mom. She told me you can meet your mom later, first go get freshen up. Function is about to start. I went to washroom, washed my face but couldnt find a towel to wipe my face. I came out of washroom in search of a towel. The moment I stepped out of washroom I saw my mom. She was looking so beautiful in a heavy silk saree. I ran into her and hugged her for a minute. Then I asked her a towel to dry my face. But, what she did after that was one of the most beautiful memories of my life. She patted my face with her pallu (pallu of her new beautiful saree).

    Me (with a surprised voice): Mom, Its your new saree and I am not a kid any more. Just give me a towel, I will do it by myself.
    Mother: For a mom her kids are always kid and when you have your mothers pallu, why do you need a towel.
    That time I couldnt control my tears. Hugged her so tightly.

    Went to Bangalore with mom . During travel I realised that The stresses of daily life may have fuelled disagreements between the two of us but everything changes when your out on the road. Youre away from the day-to-day and into relaxing environments, wandering the cobbled streets of old forgotten cities and we were just lazing away on the beach. Apart from the odd embarrassing mom moments, i learnt more about the depth of her personality and past. I was shocked to realize shes actually pretty damn cool after all! Gaining such a refreshing insight makes it one of the best travel experience you could ask for!

    When she was teaching me first time about menstruation and was explaining me how to use sanitary pads I pondered deeply and asked her if dad also uses it then she gave me a look and said .uhhh noo and I asked why.She first was annoyed and then laughed loudly

    The word MA for me means"Most Admirable". Since a child I have been a keen observer of my mom. The way she conducted herself, the way she did things, the way she guided and her strength. I have had numerous unforgettable memories which are precious. But one such memory is when visited them with my new born baby girl for the first time. She stopped me at the door . She went in bought a puja thali. She applied tika to my baby and did her aarti. She then said now we welcome our lakshmi into our house. Normally this is done for sons but this gesture of hers left a great impact on me and showed that this is how a girl child is supposed to be welcomed in the world . Mom's belief that give her love and respect for she brings in life. This memory is one of the cherished one I have. Love you Mom Gita Chaturvedi in believing in me and making me strong.
